October 24th Pay Day
I began working at a construction site at the end of last month. Due to “Strength Increase”, I became stronger, so I’m somehow managing to get by. I would get my paycheck starting next month, so for this month I’d have to get by with the money from the Izakaya.
After taking care of my living expenses, I was left with 60,000 YEN which I, of course, used for the gacha.
The 6 capsules that came out were…
Light Magic (I) R
Summoning Magic (I) R
Magic Aptitude (I) R
Stealth (I) R
Class Slate: Explorer R
Class Slate: Blacksmith R
“Light Magic” and “Summoning Magic” were new.
Along with “Magic Aptitude,” I decided to eat those three candies.
Apparently, Magic Aptitude influences the degree of control over each type of magic. And it seems like once a person’s “aptitude” is too low, they weren’t able to use that magic. For me, who has a really low aptitude, it’s the skill that I needed the most.
Light Magic, on the other hand, can only be described with one word; fast!
Using it, I’m able to shoot out lasers that attack at the speed of light, however, they aren’t that strong.
Summoning Magic allows one to summon a Hellhound which then disappears after a certain period of time. Even though it’s called a Hellhound, it just looks like a normal puppy in reality.
‘Will it become bigger if I raise the rank of the spell?’
Even so, in comparison to Fire Magic or Wind Magic, both of the new skills felt harder to control. However, if I raise my Magic Aptitude, that problem might disappear.
The last skill I got, “Stealth,” is a [Skill] that allows me to hide my presence. Even if I tried stomping with my feet, no sound came out.
‘I wonder if other people can notice my presence now? It seems like I can freely conceal or reveal my presence whenever I want. It’s a handy skill. The Class Slates that I got this time are the Explorer and the Blacksmith huh. I’ll just store them as usual I guess.’
After eating the candies, my status changed to this.
Magic Defense 19.2
Space and Time Manipulation
Appraisal (I) Wind Magic (I)
Detection (II) Earth Magic (I)
Strength Increase (II) Fire Magic (II)
Clairvoyance (II) Light Magic (I)
SP Increase (I) Summoning Magic (I)
Cold and Heat Resistance (I)
Physical Resistance (I)
Magic Resistance (II)
Magic Aptitude (II)
Growth Speed (I)
‘Next month, I’ll finally get my paycheck from the construction site. I’ll probably be able to double the amount of capsules I got today. I’m really looking forward to it!’
America – Yellowstone National Park
One of America’s proclaimed fishing spots, Yellowstone. A place usually known for its abundance of Rainbow Carps.
“Doesn’t it feel like the fish became scarce? I was able to catch way more before.”
“Isn’t it just because you suck? HA HA HA! Just take a look at my catch!”
Discussions similar to that started slowly making their way into other fishing spots throughout the globe.
Change was slow and quiet, but it surely was approaching…
